INT 2038-2020

INT 2038-2020 was introduced by Councilman Daniel Dromm to the Criminal Justice Committee.

According to the bill:

“… The council finds that it should be the policy of this city to promote the dignified and fair treatment of persons in the criminal justice system and in other institutions of confinement. The council declares that the use of outmoded terms, including “inmate” and “prisoner,” to refer to persons in custody in the criminal justice system and other institutions, is dehumanizing and demeaning to such persons, and that such terms should be eliminated from use in local law and replaced with terms that emphasize persons first, and not their circumstances …”

Idiocy like this is why people are leaving the City en masse.

Clown Council keeps handing out pork

The New York Post has an article on the NYC Council continuing to hand out pork to their cronies despite the current fiscal crisis.

What they don’t mention is this pork includes $55,000 to New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, same as FY2020.

It’s all about priorities.

Jefferson Co. resolution opposing gun control legislation

NNY360 reports:

“The Jefferson County Legislature denounced legislation that would infringe on the Second Amendment, but did not grant the sanctuary status sought by guns rights activists who faced them Tuesday. About 60 residents filled the pews of the Old Jefferson County Court House, most supporting a Second Amendment Sanctuary declaration that they hope would preempt future state gun control measures in the county … The Board of Legislators took no action towards the ordinance, but adopted a resolution declaring opposition toward laws that “would intentionally violate the inalienable rights of the people of Jefferson County.” Any laws that would implement the tracking, restriction, or confiscation of firearms, accessories and ammunition would be met with a call for repeal from the Legislature, according to the resolution. Legislature Chairman Scott A. Gray said the board evaluated and opted the resolution to underpin Second Amendment rights and reject “some onerous legislation at the state level.” The resolution referenced proposed legislation that would require gun owners to obtain no less than $1 million in liability insurance and limit the sale of ammunition for assault weapons. Mr. Gray, however, reiterated a previous claim that county officials cannot supercede state law, prompting his rejection of a sanctuary. All legislators approved the resolution save Allen T. Drake, who abstained …”

Here is a copy of the resolution.
